Safelite Group has reached an agreement to acquire substantially all vehicle glass repair and replacement assets from Auto Glass Pros, which provides service in eastern Nebraska. The transaction was completed at the close of business April 28, 2017.
Auto Glass Pros is a family-owned operation that has been in business since 2007. The company was started and led by Adam Hunt. Hunt said selling the business was in the best interest of the company’s employees and customers.
“We are very eager to join forces with the Auto Glass Pros team,” said Tom Feeney, president and CEO of Safelite Group. “Together, we can offer the best vehicle glass repair and replacement service to eastern Nebraska customers while growing a successful, caring business.”
“I believe selling Auto Glass Pros to Safelite Group is a great opportunity to continue to serve the tri-city area customers, while providing our employees the additional support and benefits that come with being a Safelite AutoGlass technician,” stated Hunt.
Of the three Auto Glass Pros locations, Safelite AutoGlass will continue to operate the Hastings facility while relocating the Grand Island employees to the nearby Safelite AutoGlass store. Safelite AutoGlass and Auto Glass Pros will operate co-branded for the near future.
